Life is Good (Illustrations for Mens S/S Tees)
I was fortunate enough to be contacted by Life is Good. (LIG) to work on some vintage inspired graphics for their men's short sleeve tees. LIG has to be one of my favorite clients to work with. They are great people doing great things. Lots of their time and effort goes toward helping sick kids through their charity "Playmakers". What a great business model.
Below are 3 illustrations I created for LIG. Included different steps in the process. From a simple sketch to the completed artwork to the tees that are recently release on their website ( I hope you like what you see. Please excuse my poor photography.
